Lögberg Heimskringla reviews our book!

Dear everyone: just checking in briefly to post a link to a glowing review of The Little Book of the Icelanders in the Icelandic-Canadian paper Lögberg-Heimskringla.

There aren’t many books I’d recommend reading over morning coffee but The Little Book of the Iceanders is one of them. […] I laughed at the essays in this book, not because I was laughing at Icelanders but because I recognize much of the behaviour in myself and members of my family. It felt good. It’s not just the sanest, most impressive characteristics that we pass on and share but also some of the zaniest. As I read this book, I frequently thought, yup, I’m definitely part Icelandic.

You can read the full review here.

ALSO, they persuaded me to write a little essay about what it was like to write this blog in the six years of its formal existence. You can read that by clicking here.

Remember, you can learn more about The Little Book of the Icelanders, including how to buy it, by clicking here. If you’re concerned about the price being listed in US dollars, and you don’t live in the US, don’t worry – assuming you pay with a credit card, the price will be automatically calculated to your currency at that day’s exchange rate.

Finally, thanks to all of you who have already bought the book – I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

    An interesting essay, and of course the new book as well.

    Duly noted that at some point ‘The Iceland Weather Report’ may call you back again.
